Can someone remind me why we have to lie on our left side? Why should we not lie on our back or right side? I can never remember a good reason. Please let me know, thanks!

Pregnant women should sleep on their side instead of back, since the weight of the uterus can constrict some of the major blood vessels, (especially the inferior vena cava) when lying on the back. Also on the right side is your liver, and due to its size, it and the uterus will put pressure on each other. So lying on your either side is the most important, but it's preferable to hyour left. I hope this helps.

I don't know about you but I can't wait to have my baby so I can lay on my stomach and back...

also... they say that if you lay on your left side it can prevent swelling and promotes proper blood flow... something about the way the organs are set up in there... so although it won't hurt you to lay on your right side... the left is best
